Houston to utilize single stream

Greenstar North America will be the first recycler to provide single stream recycling services in Houston. Single stream is an innovation in recycling that allows participants to put recyclables conveniently into one bin.

Greenstar has helped cities across Texas increase their recycling rates with the convenience of single stream – 300 percent in Dallas, 200 percent in San Antonio and 75 percent in Austin.

Houston is poised for growth and Greenstar expects recycling rates to increase once single stream is available.

Greenstar is upgrading its existing facility in Northwest Houston and has a long history of providing recycling services with operations dating back to the 1970s. The facility upgrades will include technologies to automate sorting so materials end up cleanly separated, baled and ready for sale as inputs into new products.
